Windows 7: Crysis 2 ... anybody got it yet?

Crysis 2 ... anybody got it yet?

OK, so the game is out already and I am patiently waiting for those who pre-order or got it today and will fire up the Campaign... Give us your thoughts on:

Storyline

Gameplay

Graphics

Game smoothness... walking, running, jumping, etc.

Weapon Ergonomics

and whatever else you would want to discuss. I would ask you to not just say... it sucks, or its awesome, or Epic Fail or its just a run-and-gun, why? well, it seems that, these are all the games we got so we have to lower our standards a bit and as much as I love the sporadic run-&-gun firefight but prefer tactics within the game... if the storyline is good and I am allowed to play it at my pace, I am so there.

I've just barely dug in at this point.

The graphics are surprisingly clear and functional even at higher settings on my little 5850.

Anyhow, a few basics.
The suit is now upgradeable, using alien components you find around you can actually increase, or change certain features/modes of the suit, this apparently is also true of multiplayer, (anyone that's played the demo should know that much) The world is persistent and at times almost stunning just to look at. The game does feel noticeably more linear than the original, while you aren't walking down one way corridors and you are left to decide how to handle each engagement. You do get a significantly more start to finish feel from how the game plays out.


This may upset some people, but for me it keeps you from wandering around just for the sake of it.

The storyline (at least as far as I am into it) has a feeling of building up to something epic. I can't really say a whole lot outside of that, weapons and their mods are fairly similiar to how it worked in the first game. (there is a basic weapon menu opened by pressing the appropriate key)

Having toyed with the settings I can tell you, you are really going to miss out with anything but dx11 graphics on this game. There is a noticeable amount of tesselation I can only assume the aliens are going to look like pinkish blobs without tesselation active. (they have a see thru property to them)

As for smoothness of play I've noticed no control problems and as I mentioned above performance is actually above what I expected to get with my mid range card.

That's about all I can say being only an hour or so into the game though.

Hmmm..... didn't even know the game was released.

Thanks Maguscreed, you may have talked me into getting it.

Funny, I consider my single 9800GTX+ to be little and have been considering upgrading to a 5850.

They claim it plays tolerably on 560ti nvidia card.
It's a fairly cheap card to, so you may want to look into that as well.
Yeah the release was announced at midnight on the crysis 2 blogspot. Outside of that I haven't seen much on it though.

If you're going to upgrade to a 5850 you might check out a 6950. I haven't looked at the price difference between the two though. I will however say that the 6950 is a good card for the price. They can be had for under $300 bucks. I got mine for $280 from Amazon.

Anyway I think I'll give Crysis 2 a try. I did enjoy Crysis and Crysis Warhead.
